Remove Mobile Firefox Button Gradient
If you have an Android device, you've gotta check out Firefox for Android. It's an outstanding mobile browser -- it has been very well received and you can even install apps from the Firefox Marketplace from within this awesome browser.

While I appreciate the idea, I don't necessarily want this added to elements which I want to look a very specific way. Removing this gradient effect is simple:
